In December 2010, I wrote about the death of Geraldine Hoff Doyle, whose photograph served as the prototype for Rosie the Riveter. Rosie immediately became a well-known figure for the country’s campaign to recruit women into the labor force during World War II. But women did so much more than riveting and Christine Petersen’s book Rosie the Riveter does much in explaining to young readers just what their great grandmother’s might have done outside the home to help the war effort.

When you think about Rosie the Riveter, what do you think of? I think of women working in the factories in World War II. And yes, Rosie the Riveter was a publicity scheme to attract housewives to work in ordnance factories during the war. But did you know that women had lots of other jobs during the war? They drove ambulances, pumped gas, ran shops, and fought fires (among many other things!).

This is a very informative book that starts off with an overview of World War II and American involveme

I am currently editing a long ago written paper about the WASP. I checked out this book from the library to see if they were mentioned. I was glad to see they were covered, and with as much space as the other women's military service units combined.

Overall, a thorough, though brief and simple book that, though written for children, would be useful for anyone who needs a starter or crash course in WWII.
